Haley returned the blocked field goal for a touchdown with 4:27 left to lift the Nittany Lions to a 24-21 upset victory over the no.2 ranked Ohio State. But Johnston’s gutsy chase almost saved the day, and earned him a heap of praise on social media.

In the dramatic loss Johnston was kept very busy with a total of seven punts. He had a game average of 45.4 yards, a long punt of 54 yards and one of his own punts blocked by Penn State late in the game.

Penn State (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten) took its first lead when Marcus Allen leaped high to block Tyler Durbin’s 45-yard field goal attempt and Haley made the scoop and sprint to the end zone.
